With its long green leaves and maroon undersides, the Calathea Rufibarba has one of the most unusual leaf shapes of all Calathea plants. Not to be confused with the rather similar looking Calathea lancifolia, the Calathea Rufibarba is also often referred to as the ‘velvet calathea’ or ‘furry feather Calathea’ on account of its fluffy feather-shaped leaves.
Will take quite a dark spot. Good for warm kitchens and bathrooms.
Quite a bit, loves frequent watering over the growing season (Late spring-Early Autumn) cut back over the winter but never let it get really dry.
